Newcastle-based driver Grace Panella will head to her local track today with four drives.
The 20-year-old drove her first metropolitan victory at Menangle on Saturday night on the Darren Binskin-trained Tuppence.
This pushed Panella’s career wins to 91.
Meanwhile, trainer-driver James Rattray is no stranger to winning the Inter Dominion.
The 37-year-old horseman achieved success in the time-honoured feature twice with Beautide in 2014 and 2015.
He now has another chance at Inter Dominion glory after his pacer Whereyabinboppin received a ‘golden ticket’ to the heats in Victoria starting on November 26.
Whereyabinboppin achieved this when winning the group 3 Sutton McMillan Free-For-All at Menangle on Saturday night.
There are only seven ‘golden ticket’ races with the next Sydney feature of those being the Kevin Robinson FFA on October 15.
The iForm best bets for Monday:
Newcastle best bet
Race 1: Rosberg (8)
Might prove too classy following a handy Menangle display first up for the new yard.
Newcastle next best
Race 8: Man From Braavos (3)
Unlucky not to finish closer here last and does rate highly.
Play the exotics
